can see that within the united states senate, the assault weapons ban in particular is a very tough road. because it's not just republicans. >> i can see because the nra is venal, they come after you, they put together large amounts of money to defeat you, they did this in '93 and they intend to continue it. >> this morning on the front page of the "new york times," i was reading about their program now to provide weapons a -- in other words, here is a whole new group of people that we can get these weapons to. they just don't happen to be adults, they're children. children will guns in terms of hunting is not a new phenomenon, they say we train them, we want to make sure that people who have guns know how to use them. >> one that's going to fight you tooth and nail and this is a couple of things they tell every insane killer in america that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk. politicians have no business and no authority denying us the right, the ability and the moral imper tiff to protect ourselves and our loved ones from harm. >> wynn la pier

in the united states senate for almost four years, so no, i don't think she's made a very good president. >> and finally, sir, according to a new book, president obama call called the widow of one of the people who died in benghazi, sean smith, the day after the attack and said, promise to avenge the deaths of americans. do you believe him? >> well, i'll take him as his word. but you know, that was another curious question i would like to ask secretary clinton is why when those bodies were coming home, she went up to tyrone woods' father and said we were going to bring this guy who created this video to justice. what happens what was that about? they're just trying to continue to perpetuate this false narrative. this wasn't caused by the fact that al-qaeda was on the rise. they're misleading the american public. >> thank you. >>> still to come, we're facing some of the coldest temperatures in this country. some scientists say it's due to global warming. plus, apple's shares plunging today and manti te'o admits he lied, so is he telling the truth now? try running four.ning a restaurant is

rubio, the republican senator of florida, himself an immigrant from cuba to the united states. he's out there selling this comprehensive immigration reform legislation to some skeptics, including on the rush limbaugh show today. listen to this. >> i think there's this false argument that's been advanced by the left that conservatism and republicans are anti-immigrant and anti-immigration and we are not. never have been. we are pro-legal immigration and we recognize that our legal immigration system needs to be reformed. we also recognize, because conservatism has always been about commonsense, that we have an existing problem that has to be belt with in the best way possible. >> how important is rubio's role in getting this comprehensive legislation reform passed? >> i don't think you can overstate it, wolf. it's very, very important. here's someone with undeniable conservative credentials, a bona fide member of the tea party who is effectively trying to save, i would argue, save the republican party from itself on the question of immigration. is he somebody that can go on the rush limb

to know him. as well as the united states senate. he is on the farm bills and authored most of the authorization bills. clearly his decision is personal i'm sure. he is frustrated with washington, d.c. and members of both parties are frustrated with the gridlock. the republicans will nominate somebody in main street, but while georgia is the so-called red state, president obama was able to get more than 45% of the vote there. i assume that we are going have a credible democrat who will seek the party's nomination. >> it's interesting that the conservative was afraid that even more conservative republicans may challenge him and he decided time to move on. let's move on ourselves. jeb bush the former florida governor cowrote a piece of the "wall street journal" calling for comprehensive immigration reform among other things, writing this. some tell us makers are calling for piece meal changes such as issuing visas or conferring legal status of immigrants who were brought in as children. congress should avoid such quick ficks and commit itself instead to comprehensive immigrati

the united states senate. and that's because despite the obvious frustrations of recent days and years, a frustration that we all share this place remains one of the most extraordinary institutions of any kind on the face of the earth. on occasion we all heard a senator leave here and take their leave condemning the senate for being broken, an impossible setting in which to try to do the people's business. well, i want to be very clear about my feelings. i do not believe the senate is broken. certainly not as an institution. there is nothingrong with the senate that can't be fixed by what's right about the senate. the predominant and weighty notion that 100 american citizens chosen by their neighbors to serve from states is different as massachusetts and montana can always choose to put parochial or personal interests aside and find the national interest. i believe it is the honor of a lifetime, an extraordinary privilege to have represented the commonwealth of massachusetts and the united states senate for more than 28 years. what a remarkable gift it has been to carry the banner of s

of nebraska in the united states senate i cast over 3,000 votes. hundreds of committee votes. i have also a given hundreds of interviews and speeches and written a book. so as you all know, i am on the record. i am on the record on many issues, but no one individual vote, no one individual quote, no one individual statement defines me. my beliefs, my record. my overall world view has never changed. that america has and must maintain the strongest military in the world, that we must lead in the international community to confront threats and challenges together. and take advantage of opportunities together. that we must use all our tools of american power to protect our citizens and our interests. >> i want to bring in dana bash from capitol hill along with fran townsend who's back with us here. dana, give us a sense of the mood and tone in the hearing so far. do we think he's doing well in terms of convincing critics that he's the guy for the job? >> he's certainly trying. but he definitely has critics on a whole host of issues. we knew that going into it. they are not being shy about voi

'm surprised the speaker of the house, president of the united states, we're very close to an immigration bill. give me a sense of where the senate is on that? where congress is on the immigration bill? >> my understanding from senator schumer, we will have a statement of principles, hopefully within the next week. what i pick up in the senate is that increasingly people understand that a pathway to citizenship is an important part of any immigration reform proposal. it is my belief there he will be an immigration reform proposal. my part of it is the agricultural part. and i've been meeting with workers through the farmworkers union to put together two parts of the program. one is a permanent program for farmers who need to use people 24/7, like dairy and other things, and a guest worker program. >> i have to quickly ask you a very quick question. show you a screen grab. what you will see is a picture of president obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton. being interviewed together on "60 minutes." this has captured the 2016 group a lot. and if you are joe biden thinking about th
